    "Repair Only Warranty" - No Refund, No Exchange

    A Canadian Tire policy that seems to cause a large number of complaints is their “Repair Only Warranty”. The name doesn’t sound so bad. It seems like it’s only telling you something about the manufacturer’s warranty. After all, how could a “Repair Only Warranty” doesn't sound a whole lot...

    Don't shop at Canadian Tire!

    I needed a battery for my car. First battery I've ever bought in my life, and I picked it up at the conveniently located Canadian Tire a couple of blocks away.

    I'm surprised that no one has posted in here yet. Jobmate is a Canadian Tire specific brand. AND, it SUCKS!! Very poor quality items for the most part. Extremely cheap in every way!

    From A Customer Service Rep

    The return policy isn't as cracked as you people make it out to be. I work on the customer service counter(and have also been in the sports dept, seasonal dept, and Garden Center) and I find Canadian Tire a good place to shop. Is it a career for me? Hell no. I'm a university student making some...
